The weather may be unpredictable. But you can still protect your nitrogen investment.
Koch Agronomic Services’ (KAS) next-generation nitrogen stabilizer, ANVOL, demonstrated extended protection against nitrogen loss due to volatilization in recent research. While untreated urea lost 32 percent of its available nitrogen, urea treated with ANVOL lost just 12 percent.
Consider treating UAN investments with a nitrogen stabilizer that protects against ammonia volatilization.
Soil is a nonrenewable resource that directly and indirectly produces about 95 percent of the world’s food* — so while defining soil health may not be easy, understanding its value is.
With unpredictable spring weather, protecting your nitrogen investment is critical to your overall yield potential. Environmental factors such as soil moisture, temperature, pH and compaction can all play a role in nitrogen loss.
Record-setting rain during the 2018 fall limited or prevented fertilizer applications in many regions of the U.S. Add to that an abundance of late winter precipitation, below average temperatures and large snow melt have led to record-setting floods in parts of the Midwest and saturated fields in other parts of the U.S., making it difficult for growers to hit the ground running this spring.
With persistent wet weather patterns across the U.S. causing logistical strain and delay of many growers getting into their fields, some are already making the switch from anhydrous ammonia to other nitrogen sources. This means now is the time to discuss nitrogen source alternatives and nitrogen protection options with your growers.
Nitrogen volatilization can occur in all weather conditions, including both warm and cold temperatures. But no matter how or when fertilizer is applied, without a stabilizer, it’s vulnerable to loss.
For more than 25 years, AGROTAIN has been the dependable nitrogen stabilizer from Koch Agronomic Services (Koch) that has time and again helped growers optimize their yield potential. But what if there was something even better?
When your operation depends on something as unpredictable as the weather, taking extra precautions to protect your nitrogen investment is critical.
With unprecedented rainfall in the 2019 spring, many growers across the country faced the challenge of nitrogen loss due to leaching and denitrification. Learn how SUPERU helped beat the odds.
The Field Notes podcast series from Koch Agronomic Services (Koch) will break down the science and technology behind agronomy to help growers do more with less. Crop science experts and others in the agriculture industry will discuss topics ranging from nitrogen loss and soil health to ways growers can increase operational efficiencies.
With corn being planted across the Midwest, spring top-dress applications should be top-of-mind for many growers. Typical top-dress applications are applied using white urea, with this though you may be setting yourself up for increased losses to ammonia volatilization, leaching and denitrification. Better protect your nitrogen investment with SUPERU premium fertilizer.
Dealing with unknowns is nothing new in the world of agriculture. Rainfall levels, soil conditions, unforeseen maintenance costs — the list goes on and on. Local, national and international events are also capable of throwing a wrench in even the most well-run operation. The best growers don’t just understand this fact, they accept it and adapt their strategies to deal with whatever comes their way.
The hard fact is that there are things on your operation that are out of your control. Spring rains and soil temperature both adversely impact your crop’s overall yield potential. But another fact is just as powerful – research has proven that the technology built into nitrification inhibitors can protect your UAN investment and your overall profitability.
With several regions across the U.S. receiving little precipitation over the last few months, many growers may be questioning how the lack of rain may impact their fall anhydrous ammonia (NH3) applications.
Rarely does Mother Nature give growers perfect weather conditions for their crops. Over the last several years, growers have dealt with weather conditions ranging from intense downfalls to warm, dry wind.
